The Art of Being the Perfect Expat Wife in 10 Lessons

This is a part of our Cambodia forums to chat about anything Cambodia-related. This discussion forum is at the top of our site because it's usually the busiest part of the expat community chatter with random topics on just about everything, including expat life, Khmer politics, Cambodian blogs we have or have come across, or whatever else our members want to discuss. Whether you're an expatriate, tourist, Cambodian or random traveler just passing through South East Asia, you are welcome to talk about anything or start new topics yourselves.

I tried to make a quid being a gigolo at one time but failed miserably. No one wanted a fat bald old bloke to waste their money on when other options were available.

No it wasn't a joke, I did it as a job for a while, but it's not a role that comes naturally to me. In relationships I am the opposite.

so ya did it for the $$$?

strange choice of a job
What's strange about that? Going for a niche shows good business sense, much more money than for providing the usual bog standard services.

Replace "spa" with 2.5$ massages and "champagne" bubbly with "Angkor" beer and i'm pretty sure i've seen that before around there. It's not a local specialty though

It’s a local specialty. Just not an expat specialty.

Sounds like a boring life of nothing to do all day long.

Real housewife is pretty busy.

So busy that in PRC China, they go to school to learn how to be one.

Mmmmh nah.
I've seen more local couples where the husband acts like a wanker, spending in ktvs, beers, girls, and where the wife is dealing with the real deal stuff. All across south asia at least.

And there is a portion of expats having various kind of local trophy wives, doing not much except keeping pretty and entertained, eased by higher husband wages and smaller cost of life, in all countries around at least.
You just have to know a certain amount of long-timers from the working community ($$) to see it though.
And sure enough, the cheap version of it available too, with cheap manucure and cheap beer, with a husband getting a thousand bucks per month, this is Cambodia after all.
